Marcus Daniels Y Algo Suave released the new single “Un Dolor” from their upcoming sophomore album due for release before the end of the year.
The track was written by Juan Loyola and produced by Sotero Soniceros.
“This song was inspired by those great drinking songs that we always loved performing to, like Ram’s ‘Entre Cantina Y Cantina’,” Daniels told Tejano Nation. “Hoping that the people will enjoy this throwback style and we’re really looking forward to performing this one live with horns and background vocals from Sotero and our Waco, Texas amigo from Grupo Masivo, David Garcia Arreola.”
Daniels released his debut album, My Tejana, in December 2016. He has been compared to Tejano legend Bobby “El Charro Negro” Butler, Dee Burleson or even Country artist Darius Rucker, but most believe he will bring a refreshing twist to the genre because of his wide range of influences from artists such as Prince to Dwight Yoakam.
What does Daniels say about the comparisons?
“That’s not what I’m trying to do, these are great artists, I look up to them and thanks for the compliment,” he said.
Daniels is the former lead vocalist of Grupo Ziztema of Belton, Texas. He has also performed at the Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair, opened for Ruben Ramos and shared the stage with Los A-T Boyz and Tejano’s legendary Jessy Serrata.
